Information Systems for Business and Beyond

Dublin Core

Description

If you are reading this, you are most likely taking a course in information systems, but do you even know
what the course is going to cover? When you tell your friends or your family that you are taking a course
in information systems, can you explain what it is about? For the past several years, I have taught an
Introduction to Information Systems course. The first day of class I ask my students to tell me what they
think an information system is. I generally get answers such as “computers,” “databases,” or “Excel.”
These are good answers, but definitely incomplete ones. The study of information systems goes far beyond
understanding some technologies. Let’s begin our study by defining information systems.
